So it's decided. My wife and I are getting a used Gen 3. We set our criteria as this: Must cost $10,000 or less Must be 5 years old or newer (+2013). Must have 75,000 miles or less Must be a medium sized car Must get at least 50mpg on the highway Must be reliable Must have good longevity Must not have had any major damage or salvage title Well, that pretty much narrows it down to one car. A 2013 to 2015 Prius. We had thought about getting a Prius C since they are cheaper, but decided we didn't want such a small car. We had also contemplated getting a new Prius Prime with the $5,000 Colorado tax credit and the $4,500 federal tax credit, but decided that it was too much money for our budget even with the tax credits. Basically we need something that will do 30,000 miles per year and not break the bank. We already have a car that is that way, an old VW diesel that gets up to 60mpg on the highway (which is most of our driving) and has lasted some 600,000 or 700,000 miles and still runs like a charm. But it would be nice to have air bags and air conditioning. So I'm finding some Gen 3 Prii with the mileage and conditions I want and for the price I'm willing to pay. The problem is that they are all far away, like 600 miles or better. I plan on contacting some of these dealers and individuals and eventually heading out to see some of these cars, but can take all the advice I can get on buying a Prius. Ideally I would like to only have to travel that distance once and get a good Prius, but if it's got problems that are going to give me headaches I'm willing to take my business somewhere else. Mind you I've only been in a Gen 1 Prius, and that was only for about 5 minutes and I wasn't the one driving. What should I look for? What questions should I ask? Is there a way or any reason to check the battery health?
